Ten essential EPOS features for builders’ merchants

Here are the features you should be on the look out for.

Four old-school retail practices that still work

Four old-school retail practices that still work

The British high street may look very different to what it did ten or twenty years ago, but it’s definitely not dead! Although online shopping and out of town shopping centres may have taken over from certain high street stores, there remains a demand for certain types of ‘old-school’ businesses – and some equally ‘old-fashioned’ business practices.

Reputation management: six small ways to improve your company’s standing

Now that it takes potential customers just a few seconds to find out the basics of your business, reputation management is essential. Think about it. You’re deciding on a restaurant while on holiday, so you search online for some options.

Four ways to reduce human error in stock management

Four ways to reduce human error in stock management

As much as we despair when technology lets us down, the fact remains that humans are far more prone to errors than computers – particularly when numbers are involved. Therefore, businesses can often cut costs by using technology to reduce the instances where employees must work with numbers and data.

How to set discounts without hurting profits: a merchant's guide

How to set discounts without hurting profits: a merchant's guide

Setting discounts is a science. Retailers take advantage of the psychology of consumers to persuade us to purchase items – including those we don't even need! There's no doubting the potency of a end of season sale. Sales can double your daily revenue, earn you new customers and help you shift stock that's taking up valuable room in your warehouse. However, lazily planned promotions can slash profits and even make a loss.

How to: choose the right KPIs in an era of 'big data'

How to: choose the right KPIs in an era of 'big data'

We're in the middle of a 'data explosion'. 90% of the world's data has been created in the past two years. In 1992, 100 GB of data was created each day. By 2018, that figure will reach 50,000 GB each second. Two decades ago, few businesses would have held electronic data on their customers. Now, almost every business we use on a regular basis holds our entire transaction history and many of our personal details.
